A

If you want to build any Docker images for Windows platform, you should take a look at the Windows base image first.

1. Search for Windows related images:

C:\fyicenter> docker search windows

dockcross/windows-static-x86                                                        0
...

2. Pull the microsoft/windowsservercore image:

C:\fyicenter> docker pull microsoft/windowsservercore

Using default tag: latest
Error response from daemon: manifest for microsoft/windowsservercore:latest
not found: manifest unknown: manifest unknown

So, the official Windows base image does not have a "latest" build in the Docker hub. See next tutorial on how to resolve the issue.
